Collection using Nested AD Groups?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Here's a good question for the experts,


is it possible to use a query based collection where the query is pointing to an AD group. This AD group contains another group which actually has the computer objects?





Security Group (FireFox Browser)

Security Group (Sales PCs)


The Firefox group has a membership of the sales PC group. What I want to do is create a query collection pointing to the firefox group but when populated it displays the PCs in the sales group.


The reason for this is that I am advertising the installation of firefox to the firefox collection. Obviously this is associated to the firefox ad group. What I don't want to do is put the computer objects directly into the firefox group. I'd much rather keep the groups we have (sales pcs, managers pcs) which contain the computer objects and link those groups to the firefox one. Hope that makes sense.
